How do you explain nicotine addiction? People with extremely happy lives smoke or do tobacco in some form every single day of their lives.
Same thing with alcohol addiction. There are some extremely happy people that just love the taste of good whiskey or good beer and over indulge in it.
Ive also known people personally who were happily married and loved their family and were extremely happy and loved to smoke Marijuana.
While I think you're on to something OP, I don't think it explains things as a whole.
I believe that there are certain levels of addiction regarding the "whys". I think some people look at alcohol, weed or tobacco as some kind of favorite past time or hobby.

It can be difficult in the real world to get happiness, so many times in my experience I can seek it and always come up short.
